The Vikings are in trouble after quarterback Brett Favre threw three interceptions in their game against the Packers this weekend. It was a 28-24 loss for the Minnesota Vikings, and Favre is taking the heat for the position his team finds itself in now. There are those who feel that every problem the Vikings now face is directly related to actions of the QB, who is also in the middle of an NFL investigation at the moment. Physically he is not doing so well, and his coach is also quite peeved with him. All in all, it appears to have been a difficult week for the athlete.
Brett Favre didn’t know how else to put it, he said, as SB Nation reported. Favre said that for him, the loss was “devastating.” The quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings felt as though he had let everyone down; much like a Charlie Brown, just in time for Halloween and the Great Pumpkin’s non-arrival.
The Newsbot at the Packers Forum quoted the Packers’ A.J. Hawk as graciously saying that they had the chance to stop one of the “greatest ever,” referring to Favre. Apparently, Hawk and the Packers are no Lucy’s.

Favre was hard on himself, but opponents with the Packers were not sore winners and were grateful for their chance to go against a great and win. Football is a game, and there are always winners and always losers, and no one goes undefeated. Suck it up and play, and don’t be so hard on yourself when it comes to a loss, pros. Besides, you get paid an insane amount of millions regardless of whether you win or lose, which reminds me of the old saying– it isn’t whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game. Make sure you play it with good sportsmanship and conduct yourself properly in your personal life, and you will have nothing to be ashamed of.
